d01ap is based on the QUADPACK routine QAWSE (see Piessens et al. (1983)) and integrates a function of the form gxwx, where the weight function wx may have algebraico-logarithmic singularities at the end points a and/or b. The strategy is a modification of that in d01ak. We start by bisecting the original interval and applying modified Clenshaw–Curtis integration of orders 12 and 24 to both halves. Clenshaw–Curtis integration is then used on all sub-intervals which have a or b as one of their end points (see Piessens et al. (1974)). On the other sub-intervals Gauss–Kronrod (715 point) integration is carried out.
A ‘global’ acceptance criterion (as defined by Malcolm and Simpson (1976)) is used. The local error estimation control is described in Piessens et al. (1983).

Error Indicators and Warnings

Note: d01ap may return useful information for one or more of the following detected errors or warnings.
Errors or warnings detected by the method:
Some error messages may refer to parameters that are dropped from this interface (IW) In these cases, an error in another parameter has usually caused an incorrect value to be inferred.
The maximum number of subdivisions allowed with the given workspace has been reached without the accuracy requirements being achieved. Look at the integrand in order to determine the integration difficulties. If the position of a discontinuity or a singularity of algebraico-logarithmic type within the interval can be determined, the interval must be split up at this point and the integrator called on the subranges. If necessary, another integrator, which is designed for handling the type of difficulty involved, must be used. Alternatively, consider relaxing the accuracy requirements specified by epsabs and epsrel, or increasing the amount of workspace.
Round-off error prevents the requested tolerance from being achieved. Consider requesting less accuracy.
Extremely bad local integrand behaviour causes a very strong subdivision around one (or more) points of the interval. The same advice applies as in the case of ifail=1.

d01ap cannot guarantee, but in practice usually achieves, the following accuracy:
and epsabs and epsrel are user-specified absolute and relative error tolerances. Moreover, it returns the quantity abserr which, in normal circumstances, satisfies

Parallelism and Performance


Further Comments

The time taken by d01ap depends on the integrand and the accuracy required.
If ifail0 on exit, then you may wish to examine the contents of the array w, which contains the end points of the sub-intervals used by d01ap along with the integral contributions and error estimates over these sub-intervals.
Specifically, for i=1,2,,n, let ri denote the approximation to the value of the integral over the sub-interval ai,bi in the partition of a,b and ei be the corresponding absolute error estimate. Then, aibifxwxdxri and result=i=1nri. The value of n is returned in _iw[0], and the values ai, bi, ei and ri are stored consecutively in the array w, that is:
  • ai=w[i-1],
  • bi=w[n+i-1],
  • ei=w[2n+i-1] and
  • ri=w[3n+i-1].
